  • Description

    Tucked into a quaint historical village, this 1.18-acre property with a main residence and an income-generating second house is a fine example of high-style, late-19th-century craftsmanship loaded with updates and modern amenities. The all-brick main house has a stunning double-door entry. Inside, its interiors are filled with natural light, thanks to its tall windows, 11-foot ceiling height and expansive rooms trimmed in white millwork and moldings. A front-to-back 47-foot room with gas/wood-burning fireplace offers living space, a dining area and fully renovated, open kitchen. A new powder room, mud room and access to a patio and rear yard are off the kitchen. Private quarters are upstairs and include a main bedroom suite with an all-new bath with neutral cabinetry, a whirlpool tub and stall shower. Three additional bedrooms are generously sized and share a new hall bath. Laundry facilities are also located upstairs. The attic level has interesting ceiling volume in its four sections. Behind the main residence is a separate one-bedroom house, a charming cottage with living room, dining room, new kitchen, new bath, new windows and updated HVAC. Use it for in-laws, guests or AirBnB-style income. A millrace carrying the Gallows Run Creek runs through the property and joins with Cooks Creek on an adjacent property, adding great potential for a bit of fishing from the backyard. In addition to updated heating, air conditioning, electric and plumbing (including tankless water heaters) and new septic system (sized for 8 bedrooms), a Generac standby generator is at the ready for power outages. It connects to a 500-gallon propane tank. This brick and brownstone home has a majestic presence and will serve very capably as a weekender or full-time residence. Convenient to New Jersey/I-78 and other points. Whether your design aesthetic is traditional or contemporary, this is a home not to be overlooked.
